According to podiatrist Ira Meyers, "Many runners experience heel pain and in most cases, they think that the diagnosis is plantar fasciitis. Many times they’re right. However, about half of the runners that I treat come to my office thinking they have plantar fasciitis, but in fact, have something else.  Here are some common diagnoses that mimic plantar fascial pain: Plantar fasciosis, calcaneal stress fractures, nerve entrapments, and muscle cramps. Several other possibilities exist that may cause heel pain/plantar fascia-type symptoms, including heel bone tumors (benign or malignant), systemic diseases such as diabetes, or several types of arthritis. Over 100 years ago, the most common cause of heel pain was syphilis," says Dr. Meyers.
